Did anybody catch the new "Motorweek" on the Speed Channel?

I was floored when they showed the Dodge motorcycle from the Detroit motor show. The damn thing was basically a Viper engine with a seat on it . It also had four wheels (two skinny wheels with a huge disc brake inbetween, front and back).They actually had a short vid clip of it . But they laid out the numbers for it: 0-60 in 2.3 sec and a top speed of 400 mph! How true this is, remains to be seen. But the announcer said that Dodge is actually wanting to produce this beast.

No way in hell that thing goes 400mph. It looks like the drag is pretty vicious.

The coefficient of drag isn't good, but given the small frontal area, the total drag can't be that bad. Remember, coefficient of drag is not the total drag.
